drbillanytime: Weight Loss-Keep Loss Program targets high relapse rates among dieters through psychology

January 14, 2013

MILWAUKEE, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Newly launched, drbillanytime.com announces a complimentary Webinar and BLOG series concerning the utility of psychology for one-time weight loss. With an emphasis on keeping weight off, this series treats both left brain and right brain psychology strategies. Series is developed for dieters. Weight loss professionals welcome.

Developed in response to the high recidivism rates (yo-yo effect) that characterize the state of most weight loss programs, this series hinges on the notion that traditional weight loss programs would better serve their clients by formally redefining and realigning themselves as ‘weight loss-keep loss’ programs as opposed to mere ‘weight loss programs’.

Quick weight loss programs that use weight loss pills, special foods, points, and other rapid weight loss methods are appealing but ignore the true power of psychology for one-time weight loss.

An excerpt from one of our blogs explains it well: “The sad thing about all this (recidivism rates often run 80% or better) is that behavioral science has progressed enough over the past 50 years to become a true force in helping people re-engineer their brains, aligning both the left and right hemispheres and truly helping individuals lose and become weight-worry free, while achieving higher levels of life health and happiness.

We end this blog with a recommendation that you read an article published in February 2011 in Scientific American–the essence of which is that medical science and increased understanding of the mechanics and physiology of weight gain have proven mostly vapid with respect to achieving long-term preferred weight: Scientific American Behavioral Science. Indeed, behavioral science with its weight loss food journals, social support strategies and environmental re-engineering holds the key to a healthier America.

In the end, weight loss pills are no substitute for weight loss food journals, rapid weight loss is no substitute for gradual weight loss while re-engineering the brain, and motivation is no substitute for restructuring the environment. Done right, losing weight is hard–keeping it off is easy.

Drbillanytime.com is the Weight loss-Keep loss program(TM) emphasizing one-time weight loss through behavioral science.

We emphasize one-time weight loss and keeping it off. Founded in 2011 by Dr. William McGill, Behavioral Scientist, drbillanytime(TM) challenges conventional thinking about weight loss. We engage the left brain and right brain and employ dozens of psychology constructs, while weight loss is occurring. In the end, slower, reality-based weight loss nets long-term loss. One of our mantras: Losing weight is hard. Keeping it off is easy.
